It's weird to think this time last week I was sitting in my hospital room waiting to find out whether or not surgery was going to actually happen. Now, a week later...I'm swallowing (not going to say 'eating') soft mashed potatoes, yogurt and soup. Considering both of my jaws were broke and rearranged, I gotta say,...props to the human body. It's definitely amazing. While I can't actually see the results of his work (thanks to my Cabbage Patch on crack-like appearance) it's still mind-boggling how the doctor actually did it. As the doc stated, "It's like building a ship in a bottle." Ugh...yah.
Last night while sitting in front of the television, I turn to my mom and ask, "Do I have stitches in the sides of my face?" My mom replies, "Oh. Yeahhhh. I didn't want to mention that." Fantastic! Remember when I said I really had no idea how the hell he was going to do this? The mystery keeps unfolding.
ps - I was about to post a picture of an actual Cabbage Patch doll but...it was just too flattering of a picture.
